An open letter to our Board of Directors: past, present and future:
Dear Board Members,
Thank you. Thank you for giving of your time, talent and treasure to build and support Camp Albrecht Acres for our deserving campers.
Thanks for looking over our financial statements each quarter; we know it can be a drag. It's the small, seemingly insignificant tasks that you perform that allow us to continue to run effective and efficient programming for our campers. We are grateful to have persons who care enough about our campers to spend time on these administrative tasks to ensure the camp season will run smoothly and be funded.
Thank you for entrusting your own loved ones to our care each summer. We love having connections to our campers, and we know it helps to solidify the 'reason why' for many of our board members to personally know campers who attend programming at Albrecht Acres. We are grateful for you sharing your passion for CAA through encouraging your own friends and family members to attend not only camp programs, but our events and fundraisers as well.
Thanks for planning and coordinating many of our biggest fundraisers each year, and dipping into your own bank accounts to support our campers. We are incredibly grateful to our community for supporting our campers, programs and initiatives, and we know many of our programs wouldn't be possible without your support.
Thanks for spreading our mission of inclusion in your homes, workplaces and the community. Your role as Board Members does not end when you walk out of a meeting, or off of Camp grounds. We appreciate all the work you do in our community to be a voice for those who cannot be their own voice, and to promote inclusion in the Dubuque area.
We appreciate you.
